Deltamarin develops LNG multipurpose inland vessel

Credit: Deltamarin

Deltamarin informed that it has developed a multipurpose inland vessel ‘DeltaBreaker’, in a bid to deal with climate change and enhance environmental protection.

DeltaBreaker vessel combines the features of tug, icebreaker and pusher with some added functionalities, the company claims. The ship uses LNG as fuel, so as to reduce emissions, and the hull shape has low resistance with ability to break ice up to 0.6 m thick. The current design allows operations on waterways of international (CEMT) class IV; however, smaller versions of this design can also be developed.

Furthermore, the vessel implements the Articulated Tug-Barge (ATB) system connection, which makes easier the pushing of compatible barges on inland and coastal waters. This opens up the possibility to further develop an efficient design for such barges that can be used for carrying bulk cargo, containers, oil/products, accommodation modules and as LNG transportation/bunkering facilities. A special place for two 20ft containers has been reserved on the aft deck.

Additional functions like firefighting, oil-spill cleaning or environmental measurements may therefore be easily incorporated into the design.
